The next-generation Nissan Micra has been spotted testing ahead of its expected debut at the 2016 Paris Show in October.
The new Micra hatchback is based on Renault's CMF-B architecture and takes its styling cues from the Nissan Sway concept unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
However, the India bound Micra will not be sharing the same platform as the model seen in the pictures above. Instead, the Indian variant of the Micra will be based on the current V platform.
The spied test mule is what will eventually be the European Micra and it retains quite a few of the styling cues from the Sway concept.
With its sharp swoopy front and a bonnet with creases running across it and angular headlamps, the Micra looks a lot more aggressive than the current Micra.
The swooping roofline transforms into a spoiler at the rear end of the car while the rear door handles have made their way onto the C-Pillar of the car. The rear end of the car features LED taillamps which bulge out a bit.
The new Micra is expected to add a turbocharged 0.9-litre petrol engine to its lineup and the new engine is expected to be mated to both manual and automatic gearbox options.
